    Saw this one today at GC, and after playing it, it followed me home.

    I like having a humbucker to choose from, and I like the color. It's set up just fine, and the neck feels good.

    can you still get that Strat "quack" with the humbucker in there?

    I am also looking at getting one of these soon.....

    It can quack.

    But then again, I've never thought of it as "quack".

    I played the Maple neck version and loved it. First USA Standard Strat I have liked in years!
    Good stuff

    They had the new 08 American Deluxe as well. It had an exquisitely gorgeous maple neck. BUT>>>It had one tall fret. It sure was nice, except for that. That's why try before you buy is the best path...

    I've been enjoying the hell out of this one. Real nice guitar. They certainly got this one right.
